how do you rate the kelsa to a botex:001_smile:

 

Who me? Not much experience of botex, except for taking my assessments on a scrounged one! I think brushcutter on here possibly has more lever time to compare cheers J

KESLA 303 - 304 - 305 - Loaders - www.kesla.fi ours is the 305 T 8.5 m reach you loose a little lift but gain in covering a bigger distance. as a addit please make sure if you are buying a crane you get the correct controls and spool vale to operate the crane, buy together as a package and /or use someone who has the knowledge.

I have more time on a Botex than a Kelsa. Used both the bigger Kelsa harvester/forwarder cranes and their tractor/trailer cranes. They're both fantastic cranes just do different things.

 

I've never used a 3 series Botex only the 5 series (560TL etc). They do them in 6,7 and now 8m reach (i have a 7). To go with this they have a massive lift capacity plated at 2.8t close in! If your doing big hardwood sawlogs then a Botex will more than likely be the crane for you.

 

The Kelsa are a little quicker in general use but only have a lift capacity around the 1.5t mark close in. The extensions are generally quite speedy even on the jake mount off a valtra 900s tank.

 

I have yet to see a Botex piped up on fancy electrohydraulic though to run through the joysticks on the armrests. Where as Kelsa do this which makes a massive difference.

 

Comes down to Botex=power Kelsa=reach & speed.

 

As Jerry said Power=chips just make sure you s/h T190 isn't used and abused. The only T series Valtra i've used is a T130 and it had a engine problem.

Just been trawling the farm forum , it seems that the high power valtras seem to be getting a bad rep at the moment

Bad brakes and pto packs

Anyone heard anything ?
